IC is stoked AF to attend the first edition of Brooklyn’s GARDENS, a new queer house music party series that prioritizes openness and safety on the dance floor. The lineup will feature house music icons from Chicago (Phoneg1rl) and Berlin (Cinthie) alongside local techno and club DJs like Papi Juice co-founder Oscar Nñ and experimental badass NK Badtz Maru. A rising wave of Brooklyn-based drag queens–including Zenobia, HaraJuku, and Panthera–will also perform. GARDENS will aim to celebrate the queer and intersectional experience, promising to be one of the most insane parties of the new year. Check out the talent to be featured at GARDENS’ first party, going down this Saturday night at Elsewhere, below. Cop tickets here.
